$50 Includes Museum, tasting and lunch. No wine.
We will meet in Union Square and take the L-train to Williamsburg. From there it is a 10-minute walk to The Museum of Food and Drink for their current exhibit, “Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant.” This exhibit celebrates the birth and evolution of Chinese American restaurants, tracing their nearly 170-year history and sparking conversation about food, culture and immigration. Immerse yourself in a stunning timeline of Chinese American restaurant menus dating back to 1910 as these artifacts show the evolution of the cuisine, decade by decade. Enjoy a tasting created by the country’s most talented Chinese chefs. Take in the aroma of freshly baked cookies as you watch and taste from a fortune cookie machine in action. After this tour of the museum and the tasting, the group will walk 7-minutes to WILD GINGER PAN ASIAN VEGAN CUISINE for a great casual Asian inspired lunch. This restaurant has been a staple in Williamsburg for a dozen years and recently relocated to a larger location. I have eaten here many times and the food is delicious. Afterwards, we will walk through Williamsburg and head to the famous food Smorgasburg on the waterfront facing NYC. Smorgasburg happens every Saturday at East River State Park, featuring packaged and prepared foods, purveyors from New York City and across the region for a total of 100 vendors. This includes admission to MOFAD, the tour with tasting, lunch and a walk to the waterfront Smorgasburg. RSVP early for this.MOFD
